The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - MUSIC -

THOUGH Shawn Men­des is the big­gest star to be dis­cov­ered on the Vine ap p so far, he is cer­tainly not the only one hop­ing to make the leap from six-se­cond snip­pets to ra­dio su­per­star.

Here’s a look at some oth­ers:

Jack & Jack

Hails from: Omaha Known for: The 19- year-old pals Jack Gilin­sky and Jack John­son started with com­edy Vines be­fore turn­ing to pop-lean­ing rap, in­clud­ing the Cal­i­braska E Pf rom last sum­mer which hit the Top 5 on the rap and R& B charts.

Lat­est re­lease: Tho ugh the Jacks are work­ing on their de­but al­bum this year, their mo st re­cent re­lease is on the lat­est sin­gle from Jeri­cho’ s Madi­son Beer, All For

Love, which seems fit­ting since Beer and Gilin­sky are dat­ing.

Bobby Sh­murda
